Downtown Management Board Seeks Applicants to Fill Two Vacancies

Call for applications to the Downtown Management Board

EAST LANSING, Mich. — The City of East Lansing is seeking applicants to fill two vacancies on the Downtown Management Board (DMB). One position is to fill an immediate vacancy and the other will begin in January 2024. 

The mission of the DMB is to promote the City of East Lansing’s downtown area through a variety of marketing and creative placemaking efforts. These campaigns are designed to encourage community members to shop, dine, live and invest in downtown East Lansing.

Community members who own or manage a business within the DMB area, DMB district property owners and those who are residents of either the DMB district or an adjoining neighborhood, such as Bailey, Oakwood, Chesterfield or Glencairn are eligible to serve on the DMB. 

Those who meet these qualifications and wish to serve, may visit to apply for a seat. 

The DMB consists of nine members who serve four-year terms. The commission meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 3 p.m. at City Hall, 410 Abbot Road.
